For the last 2 days it has felt like I've got water in my left ear....

It doesn't hurt, but I just can't seem to pop my ear. I've yawned like a mill. times, tried laying on that ear side, on the other side, shaking my head. People prob. think I'm possesed or just crazy!! lol. Everything sounds like I'm underwater, or in a tunnel or something, on that side though. Any idea's of what could've caused it, and how I can fix it?

  • That happened to me once when I was on vacation. I got hit by a wave and all of the sudden I just couldn't get the water out of my ear. I finally called a dr to come and see me at the hotel and turned out I had some wax that was blocking the water from getting out. All he did was syringe some water into my ear and the wax came right out. Might be worth a try.

  • an infection, or fluid build up... see your dr or find an over the counter remedy (not sure what its called but they are ear drops that worked for my SO)
